rear track bar relocation bracket for sure. I'm not a fan of there discos I opted for JKS but that's your choice. I have the coils from this lift but I substituted different shocks bc the RC shocks are junk IMO. I had the shocks for a month and hated them, RC took them back and gave me a full refund so that was nice. If your going to get larger tires you might want a steering stabilizer but it's not critical.

Depends what you plan on doing. If you want to disconnect your sway bar when off roading than discos make it MUCH easier. I'm not 100% on this so someone else correct me if I'm wrong but I think you can still keep your stock links with only 2.5" of lift. I got rid of my stock links and went to jks quicker discos but I disconnect my sway bar pretty often so they were worth it.

You do not HAVE to get a relocation bracket unless you have rubbing and that will depend on whell backspacing and tire size you have. Lifting will shift both axles slightly (2.5" may move then about 3/4"). Off center axles will not cause driveability or tire wear problems.

Discos depend on how you are using your Jeep. Does any of the off roading you may do need full articulation?

Neil is correct but the bracket will recenter the rear axle it's good for anal people like me, that's why I suggested it but prob not REQUIRED. for $15 though why not.

Yes the rear is easy enough to do. For 15-20 it's not a big issue. The frant does require an adjustable track bar wch will be 100+ .

Yup, I still need a front to re center the axle. I used the relocation bracket on the rear just waiting for the $ for the front. Either way you should be fine.

I had that lift, i would recommend the steering stabilizer for sure. DONT GET THEIR DISCOS!!!!!! They suck all the holes didnt line up. I drilled them out and they still didnt work. The kit should come with the relocation bracket, i would see if you need it first.

if you insist on going with RC, then add these goodies...

1. better shocks, I'd suggest OME
2. JKS front discos
3. Rokmen control arms
4. Currie TJS front track bar
5. JKS rear track bar
6. OME track bar bracket, welded on, with reinforcement added
7. JKS rear adjustable sway bar links
8. YJ front brake lines
9. SYE/CV shaft
10. 1" MML + 1" BL
11. UnderCoverFab aluminum tummy tuck and engine skid
12. ZJ V8 tie-rod
13. 1.5" bumpstop extensions in front and rear
14. Barnett front diff cover, SOLID in rear
15. Savvy aluminum gas tank skid
16. HP D30 in front
17. Regear

That should about cover it. Will fit 33s very nicely and give about 15-16" clearance at the belly, with ~4.5" uptravel and downtravel all the way around.
